2017 United Way Day of Caring
Day of Caring is a one-day event that supports United Way’s mission to bring people together to improve lives and strengthen communities through volunteering.
On Day of Caring, local businesses partner with nonprofit agencies to make a difference by completing volunteer projects. This day of service is an opportunity for volunteers to help local nonprofits, schools and government agencies to make our community a better place to live.
For 2017, HR Green’s Cedar Rapids office partnered with The Salvation Army for three projects; one was to help them with their gardening, where they use fresh produce to make meals for those in need in our community, second, was to help freshen up their landscape by trimming back overgrown bushes, weeding and mulching, and the last was helping them clean their vans that they use to transport meals to housebound persons in need and to help when disaster strikes in the local area.
